Avengers Assemble #4 (Weakest of minds Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Jun 16, 2012 9:34 am

More fun with Marvel’s Movie-Stars, and this time it’s serious as Thanos here and he’s kicking ass. We don’t get to hear much about his plans or why he’s back, but was just a bad-ass here, just standing there barely moving, talking smack to Thor and getting the Hulk to do his business. If this is any hint as to how he’s going to be depicted in ‘Avengers 2’ then that movie is going to be epic. Mark Bagley really got to cut loose with this issue, he gave us action in the classic mighty Marvel manner and then some. I also liked the quieter moments, like Black Widow’s interrogation of the lead Zodiac guy. I thought it was cool that Bendis brought back the Hood’s consigliere John King, if only because it will piss off the element of the Avengers fanbase that hate all things Hood. I did find it odd at the end that Iron Man was saying cosmic threats like Thanos are above the Avengers, they’ve fought him quite a few times haven’t they? But that doesn’t matter really, because the Guardians Of The Galaxy know all about Thanos and they’re back too! Like Thanos, we don’t get any explanation as to how Starlord isn’t dead or how the team is back together, and I hope Bendis has a good one up his sleeve. Thanos Imperative was a great story and I’d be annoyed to see it undone in a crappy way. Perhaps it would have been better to use The Annihilators?

I found that comment a little odd as well. Maybe the Avengers are a little rusty in the cosmic department since they were too busy fighting each other during the first Annihilation and haven't really fought someone the caliber of Thanos since well before Bendis took over the book.

But that doesn’t matter really, because the Guardians Of The Galaxy know all about Thanos and they’re back too! Like Thanos, we don’t get any explanation as to how Starlord isn’t dead or how the team is back together, and I hope Bendis has a good one up his sleeve.


I am excited that Starlord is back because that opens up the potential for Richard Rider, the real Nova, to return soon. However, 2 things bugged me about the page featuring the cameo by the Guardians of the Galaxy. #1, where is Groot? #2, why isn't Starlord in his GotG costume?

Well, Ronan kind of has his own troubles right now, the Silver Surfer is hanging out with the Defenders, and Gladiator is looking for his son while he sends death commandos after a teen girl. I think that they may have their hands full. Plus Thor, Hulk, Ronan, Beta Ray Bill, Silver Surfer, AND Gladiator vs. Thanos?! Thats not the type of fight that you just throw out all willy nilly.
